On Amy's behalf...C25K is Couch-to-5K. It's a beginner running program that gets you from basically nothing to running 3 miles in 9 weeks. I've done it, as have several other ladies on here. We're all pretty big fans of it!

LOL, I started the thread and forgot to put my goals down. So this month I'm going to complete P90X Doubles, Training Block 2 and continue running three times a week with my 20K training program.

That's some great goals ladies and Amy welcome aboard!

Since I went WAY overboard with my goal last month and had to revise it, I'm definitely going to be more realistic this month. So my goals are:

Exercise 1620 minutes total for monthand Start C25K. I did this last month but didn't stay consistent so this month I'm going for it again. Amy I'll help hold you accountable if you'll do the same for me! I could definitely use it!

I can't wait for October! Let's do it!

HelpMeLose~ I don't want to break any link rules, but you can find the c25k program by googling "Cool Running Couch-to-5k."

BigSexy ~ Sounds like a plan! 5K, here we come!

As I've just joined a gorgeous new gym that opens tomorrow I'm very motivated for this. Here's my goal:

Minimum of 4x a week for 1000 minutes
I'll be trying out new classes that will be gentle on my bad knee and hitting the cardio wave machine.

I can't wait!

Thanks ladies for replying. I am going to look into that. I was actually planning on doing a 5k this saturday but with being sick with the flu last week and still coughing I don't think it will be a good idea. But there is another one in November that I want to do and that would obviously help get me ready for that as I have not done any running recently. So maybe that will be added in this month!

Starting out slow with my first real exercise goal:

3 CD's of walking on my treadmill a week!

By that i mean ill pick some of my favorite CD's, one for each of the three days ill be walking a week. I'll end up walking to 12 different CD's. If I'm going to be motivated to exercise, I can't think of a better thing to incorporate then music .

Hey everyone! Great goals!

September was my first exercise challenge, 1200 minutes, and I met it. Having the goal was very motivating to me, so, thanks!

For October, my goal is 1300 minutes of exercise.

Okay...I'm new to this, but think the exercise challenge is an excellent motivational tool...so I have been walking two miles a day for the past three weeks...

My October goals are: 1. Walk 3 miles x 3 days per week
2. Indoor exercise x 2 days per week

I certainly need the accountability...thanks everyone!!!
